Welcome to our first week of workouts designed by Jeff Martone of Tactical Athlete. Jeff has been working with kettlebells since long before they were mainstream. In fact, he actually built his first one himself. Through his work with everyone from the military, to martial artists, to housewives, Jeff has created an effective training system. So, grab a kettlebell and give it a shot!

 

Four new workouts are posted each week, starting on Monday, and can be done on any day you have available. Make sure you warm up adequately before starting any of these workouts!
